Career Pathway Overview
What is cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity keeps companies safe from hackers, protects sensitive data and allows people to conduct their digital lives free from harm. Through our partnership with Google, you’ll learn how to identify common risks, threats and vulnerabilities, as well as the techniques to mitigate them. You will earn the Google Cybersecurity Certificate when you complete the development phase of our Cybersecurity apprenticeship.

How to launch your cybersecurity career
Catalyte’s screening doesn’t take your job history, education level, existing skill set or demographics into account. It’s designed to measure your potential to succeed in a chosen career pathway.
Interview and selection
The purpose of the interview is for you to learn more about us and for us to assess if you will be a good fit for a Catalyte apprenticeship. If so, we’ll invite you to join an upcoming apprenticeship.
Under the guidance of our expert instructors and working closely with fellow apprentices, you will develop the technical and interpersonal skills needed to deliver valuable work during your apprenticeship. Those who successfully complete the apprenticeship development phase are eligible to continue into the apprenticeship deployment phase at Catalyte or a client.
When deployed as an apprentice, you’ll apply the skills you acquired while continually learning new ones to meet the needs of our clients. The whole apprenticeship equips you with the skills and experience needed to successfully continue with your chosen career.
